A true heir of the legendary McLaren F1 (1992-1998), the McLaren Speedtail is the brand’s new attempt at bettering their signature flagship, drawing on the proven formula of hand-built craftsmanship, high-tech materials, and aerodynamic design.
In the line of the Porsche 918 Spyder or the LaFerrari, the Speedtail is powered by a hybrid system that assists with acceleration, makes efficient use of regenerative braking, and minimises emissions.
Much like its predecessors, the F1 and the P1, it combines a sumptuous carbon-fibre monocoque body, a three-seat layout with the driver in the centre, and abundant horsepower numbers that propel this sculptural machine from 0 to 299kph in 12.8 seconds. The slippery bodywork, in addition to retractable camera mirrors and static front wheel covers, ensures that drag is kept to a minimum while driving at speed, topping-out at over 400 kmph.
A limited run of 106 units makes it a true collectible masterpiece of the brand; one to blend aesthetic beauty and technical prowess, art and science, in the spirit of McLarens past.
Chassis number 002 is finished in a subtle Frozen Diamond Silver, appearing to be of a pale metallic blue, with matching blue Nubuck leather. Sporting nearly $600,000 USD worth of additional options —including a 24k gold heatshield, TBT accents, chrome wheels and a full luggage set—, this exclusive Speedtail has obtained a Europea CoC and is one of the most attractive colour combinations of the model’s limited run.
